FLSmidth received the order from the Switzerland-based Red Metal.

When operational, the equipment will process a total of 84Mt/y of ore. The order is valued at approximately DKK 1,700 million (US$248.7 million) and will be booked in the March 2020 quarter.

Each of the four lines will consist of a single 40ft (12.2m) semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill with a 28MW drive and two 28ft (8.5m) ball mills, each with a 22MW drive. When installed, the SAG mills will be the largest in all of Asia.

All drives are gearless motor drives from ABB. Each line will also include an FLSmidth cone crusher solution with state-of-the-art digitalisation and control system. The first production line will be delivered in 2022 and the supply of the subsequent lines will continue throughout 2023.

"We are delighted to confirm this significant order," commented Manfred Schaffer, mining president at FLSmidth. "To receive a combined equipment order to supply four SAG mills and eight ball mills illustrates great confidence in FLSmidth and underlines the proven performance and productivity of our high-end grinding circuit solutions. The efficiency of the equipment will meet our customer promise to deliver sustainable productivity to the mining industry."
